Copper Mining and Extraction: Oxide Ores

The process used to treat sulfide copper ores begins at the mine site, where the copper-bearing minerals are physically separated from the rest of the rock. The flow diagram below shows how the percentage of copper increases as the ore is refined, first physically by froth flotation, then chemically by smelting and finally electrolytic refining

Learning Goals: -What is an ore deposit?

soil samples from across the prospective area. These samples provide us with copper concentrations which will help you to decide where to drill. Copper grade is the concentration of copper in the ore rock. To calculate the grade of copper for the sample, geologists use the equation: (amount of copper metal/amount of copper ore rock)*100 2.
